I contemplated taking some before and after but I was pressed for time. They're definitely the brightest you can get without going HID.

The cutting part is really easy. I used to modify 9005 high beam bulbs for the driving lights and this is much easier. That required a dremel and this is a fraction of that.

All you need to do is take your stock light bulb and eye ball that with the 9012 bulb. The center tab is 2x long and about 1/3 wider. Using a pair of quality toe nail clippers, or ideally some small snips, you just need to trim about a 1/3 of the way from the right and about 1/2 way from the top. It took maybe five minutes. When you compare the bulbs you'll know what I'm talking about.

I'm probably going to do my gf's car tomorrow so I'll take pics then of the before and after.

Changed the rear differential fluid and installed a 4xGuard rear diff cover.

It took me much longer than I had planned since my brand new caulk gun decided to break and I was forced to walk a mile to get a replacement gun and rtv sealant.

Replaced some clips that held various plastic pieces on that had broken off. Wheeling 2-3 times a week in a WK can be expensive. Flexed out and lost another rear wheelwell weatherstrip so I

I've been wanting to get a nav bezel as well, how much did you end up spending for it?

Installed new CREE reverse LED's.
Easiest job ever, less than 5 min.

They're much brighter than stock.

I think I got it off eBay for 80 or something. Keep searching for it, there are done good deals to be had if you keep your eyes open for a while.

As for today, washed, clay bar, wax, reattach back door trim pieces with VHB tape, reprogrammed to 87 octane, vacuumed, conditioned leather, wiped interior, and cleaned windows. Also found a good way to let the dogs job me out front.
